Direct Compression (DC) – Maximum Profitability

Direct compression is the least complex and most cost-effective alternative to traditional granulation. Because they are convenient and easy to administer, tablets are the most popular pharmaceutical dosage form. They can be produced inexpensively in large volumes. Moreover, dosing accuracy is consistent. Given the efficiencies, direct compression is becoming the preferred process for tablet manufacture by pharmaceutical companies globally. Decreased energy, labour, and capital costs as well as the increase in overall product stability are a few of the many benefits.

Few traditional excipients provide the functional characteristics, specifically powder flow and compactability, required for robust direct compression tablet manufacture. As a result, modifying traditional excipients may be necessary. This may be accomplished through spray-drying, agglomeration, roller-drying, or co-processing lactose to enhance the functional characteristics desired for directly compressed pharmaceutical dosage forms.Products:DC excipients:Tablettose® 70Tablettose® 80Tablettose® 100FlowLac®…

Lactose for Inhalation Applications – Versatile, in Line With Your Needs

InhaLac® is tightly controlled sieved or milled lactose specifically designed and especially suited for dry powder inhalation drug delivery. InhaLac® products are available in standard forms or as customised solutions to suit your exacting needs. InhaLac® fulfills the need for excellent flowability, defined particle surface, and chemical and physical stability in dry powder inhalation drug delivery.

InhaLac® is perfect for these applications due to the extremely narrow particle size distribution. This specialised excipient is practically free of unstable, amorphous lactose.Products:InhaLac® 70InhaLac® 120InhaLac® 230InhaLac® 250InhaLac® 400  Sieving Inhalation

Milled Lactose – For Optimum Granulation

GranuLac® and SorboLac®, milled lactose, have good compaction properties due to its small particle size. It is best granulated, wet or dry, before tablet production. It is the most frequently used excipient for granulation.
